It’s not 5 star, but neither are the prices. It has a nice home like feel, 2 bedrooms, small lounge room area with big tv, small but useful kitchen and best of all a washing machine. It is close transport and grocery shopping. For us the biggest negative is hearing the

We were looking for somewhere to base ourselves in London for 9 nights, without paying exorbitant prices & Castletown House ticked all the boxes. The location was fantastic. West Kensington Station is about a 4 minute walk way, on the Central line, Baron Court is about an 8

Mark is easy to communicate with and very helpful considering we came in on Christmas day. He offers many suggestions for places to eat, things to see and even board games for time indoors. We didn't spend much time in! London is so very close and as West Kensington is just a

We had a great experience here. Mark bent over backwards trying to help us find something when we arrived. He also gave us some great tips on places to eat and where to go. Only thing was it was up 3 flights of stairs, not bad but after walking up and down stairs all day

Mixed feelings on our stay - we were in the two bed apartment separate from the main house in a basement 2 streets away. Positives: good location for tube and plenty of supermarkets and restaurants on the high street. Mark was helpful and we had great communication by email

Do you have queen beds in the double basic rooms.?
Hi and thank you for your question: Our basic studio has a standard double bed which cannot be split: 135 x 190cm. All other beds measure 153 x 192 cm which is in between a King (Width) and Queen (Length) Bed. I hope this assists you. Kind regards Richard Poppleton

Hi Yes we cab hold luggage for you for a couple of hours, we do not have a luggage store per say, but we will either leave in an apartment or with reception. We do not charge for holding luggage. If you have a late flight, you may also book the last day at 50% and the apartment would then be yours till Midnight. Hope this helps Richard Poppleton

Hi just wondering if the standard studio and family studio are basement level or above please?
Everything is basic but servicable. If your spending a lot of time sightseeing its great value but if i had small children i would probably choose something else only because I would need to spend longer there and they could get out the windows. Small but comfortable.

Hi and thank you for your question about Castletown House. Our three bedroom apartment can accommodate 6 people, and a one bedroom apartment can accommodate up to 4 people. I would therefore recommend booking these two apartments. Please do let me know the dates you wish to visit London and I can check availability for you and you may also contact us directly should this be easier. We look forward to welcoming you to London should you make a booking with us.

Hi Like most Uk properties our apartments do not have air conditioning, however we are happy to supply fans for all rooms and you may have windows open as we are not on the main road. We normally get a week or 2 of very hot weather the majority of time it is very manageable. I would have thought in June with the back up of Fans your stay with us would be comfortable. I hope this helps Richard

"Had a large room on the ground floor which overlooked the street and it was fabulous."
"Basement apartment was quiet"
"The studio flats are spacious with lot's of light coming through. The back rooms are more quieter"
"Few all the photos online. The units all face quiet streets. Not even a 5 min walk to the West Kensington tube station. Great location"
"Studio apartment was entirely adequate for our needs as we were out all day."
US$126 - US$335 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
